GE Spacemaker XL 1800 - Noise while heating

Our Spacemaker XL 1800, all of a sudden, started making a whizzzzz kind of a noise (sort of something got loose inside) when we turn on the microwave. The noise mostly seems to come from the vent area above the top of the microwave door. I took the vent cover off and found that the charcoal filter was slid down. But even after I put the charcoal filter in place the noise doesn't seem to go off. What could be the problem? Is that something that I can fix by myself? Thanks.

    I have the same model, but i have an loud buzzing sound when i turn on the microwave. It does not matter what mode I am in, it buzzes.

    Our micro started buzzing. I unplugged it, touched the buttons as suggested in another post, plugged it in and the buzz was gone.....until I opened the door. I don't know if the unit works / can't stand the buzzing.

It sounds like the main transformer has failed. It would be cheaper to replace the whole microwave than repair this one. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hope this helps. Good luck.

It could be that the "grinding" noise was actually "arcing" taking place inside the cavity or uder the cover. The magnatron is possibly damaged or the h.v. diode. Should be repaired by qualified repairman

My GE spacemaker microwave won't heat and makes an unusual sound


I have the same problem on my oven- model JVM1640WB and called an appliance repairman who is honest and reliable (I've used him before). He said the problem is with the electrode, to fix it is roughly $300. He recommended buying a new microwave rather than fixing it.
